    Mucus and Inner ear problems

    Hey everyone, just looking for some answers! A little background into what's going on with me:

    About 5-6 months ago, I started noticing that my eyes were starting to feel strained and I was experiencing slight dizziness. I don't want to say it was vertigo but almost like my eyes were having a hard time focusing. This went on for a few weeks until I finally went to see an optometrist, fearing I was losing my vision. The optometrist said my eyes were pretty much perfect so I decided I'd go see a Doctor. I didn't realize it until I was discussing my symptoms with him that my right ear seemed to be plugged for a while; like it needed to be popped. Anyways, he diagnosed me with labyrinthitis and said it should go away within the month.

    Fast forward a few months and the symptoms hadn't gone away. Some days were better than others but I never felt perfect. Went to another Doctor and he also said labyrinthitis.

    So since then I pretty much accepted the fact that I had labyrinthitis and it was just lasting longer than normal. That was until I started to realize that I've been having really bad mucus problems in my throat. I'm constantly clearing my throat(my girlfriend loves this) and sometimes it gets so bad where I feel like I can't breathe. So what I'm wondering is if these symptoms could be related?

    A quick recap of all my symptoms:
    -Right ear problems(clicking when chewing, feels like it needs to be popped, occasional tinnitus)
    -Mucus in throat constantly
    -Dizziness but I wouldn't call it Vertigo. Eyes seem to be trying to focus but can't.
    -Anxiety(not sure if this is related but since these symptoms started it has been way worse)
    -Feeling awful out of nowhere. Not vomiting awful but like I'm getting a bad cold.

    Any help or advice would greatly appreciated as I really miss feeling normal. Thanks a lot!

    I think you can get mucus in the inner that causes problems. I posted some more details in another post on this page. I do find antihistamines and mucinex time released pills do help. I have notice some times when I put a q-tip in my ear mucus will then come down my throat and cause me to cough. It's clear all this stuff is related. If I can keep my nasal passages open I have less of these inner issues ringing and balance.
